By definition, the Aston Martin DB12 is a grand tourer (or GT car), meaning that while undoubtedly fast, nimble, and powerful, the car’s purpose is for traveling long distances as quickly and as comfortably as possible. However, Aston Martin calls the DB12 “the World’s First Super Tourer” saying that it’s so far beyond what a GT can be. “In addition to showcasing the generosity of amfAR attendees, the incredible amount raised through this charity auction highlights the excitement for the new DB12 and the unique ultra-luxury and high-performance aspects of this model that elevate it well beyond the current GT category,” explained Aston Martin’s Executive Chairman Lawrence Stroll.
Specs-wise, the DB12 is powered by a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 that generates an impressive 671 horsepower. It’s capable of a top speed of 202 miles per hour and can accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in a not-at-all-stately 3.6 seconds.
